Date of Publication: 1962-10-31
Date in Notice: notice: 1960
Copyright Note: C.O. correspondence.
While it was first published in August 1962, the film was made in 1959 and carried a copyright notice stating 1960. A published film from this time's first copyright term began during the year contained in the notice, regardless of whether that notice reflects the publication date (a predated notice of less that 28 years was acceptible if a timely registration and renwewal was lodged, but a post dated notice of more than one year is considered a faulty notice.) For this movie, a renewal registration was required by 31 December 1988 for the copyright to endure into the second term. No such renewal was lodged.
